a bullet, just barely, not because of the obama administration's efforts, i'm sorry to say, and not because of the efforts of the united kingdom, i'm sorry to say. but because of the french. and we have them to thank. the talks, and i quote, unexpectedly fell apart at the last minute when the french foreign minister publicly objected to what he called a sucker's deal, meaning that the united states was prepared to begin lifting sanctions on iran in exchange for tentative iranian promises that they would slow their multiple nuclear programs. now this is very important that i read this, mr. speaker. because brett stevens goes on to say in his article, not stop their nuclear program, not suspend their nuclear program, mind you. much less dismantle them. but merely reduce their pace. from troun jog. when they're on mile 23 of their nuclear marathon. he said it says a rot about the administration that they so wanted a deal that they would have been prepared to make one. and what this deal would have meant, quite simply, mr. speaker is that we would have seen an iran with a nuclear bomb very soon
and the obama administration has already made major concessions for getting in except the bull but permanent arrangement, in my view. this is a flawed agreement that risks reducing pressure on iran in the next six months in return reneged upon issues. billion to $7 billion over the next six months. the danger is that easing sanctions as part of an interim deal and it will diminish the pressure of undermining the leverage and reduce the ability to get a better deal at the end. they are not required to comply with the u.n. council resolutions that called for a halt in uranium enrichment and them to continue bad behavior. that russia has been contracted to fuel the facility at least for the next 10 years. interimproblem is the deal which creates a six-month window for further figures she nation may hinder the ability to reach a good final deal. there may never be a final deal. up -- iran mayg string this up and engage in tactics to force the eager obama administration to enter into accords with corresponding sanctions relief. we have seen how temporary these congeal into permanent solutions in
's agenda runs through the -- president obama's agenda runs through the d.c. circuit. you can't get what you want through the congress because the american people in november, 2010, said they had had enough. they issued a national restraining order after watching two years of this administration unrestrained, so now it runs through the bureaucracy and the d.c. circuit. as i said, in short, unlike the first two years of the obama administration, there is now a legislative check on the president and the administration doesn't much like checks and balances. so it wants to circumvent the people's representatives with an aggressive regulatory agenda, and our democratic colleagues want to facilitate that by filling up a court that will rule on his agenda, a court that doesn't even have enough work to do, especially if it means changing the subject from obamacare for a few days. and get this -- they think they can change the rules of the senate in a way that benefits only them. they want to do it in such a way that president obama's agenda gets enacted but that a future republican agenda couldn't g

, good morning. i do believe president obama did mislead us. anybody who is paying attention knew he very beginning supported single-parent health time. for long that is his philosophy. disingenuously, tried to show that he was a moderate. really he was not from the beginning. to get his things through he had to lie about these things to disguise his intentions. upthe media had just stood and told the american people what he actually supported, which is top-down, bureaucratic z,nagement of everything, a- he never would have gotten elected. they figured anything was better than a republican. if you look at all the things he supported and the way he got ,hat health care bill through going to different states and browbeating and putting in to help them -- nebraska and pays his like that -- and places like that -- it was not genuine us -- genuine. host: reuters reporting this morning that the health group dropped thousands of doctors from its health group from recent weeks. the story is available online from yahoo! news. it says -- the company also supported more health care premiums on medic

new sanctions and tougher sanctions that the obama administration is warning could derail the whole talks. the plan from republicans was to push them on the bill. on friday, leadership aides were suggesting there would not be time to finish the defense bill and have a vote on the sanctions. david bidder who held up the bill on last week over his obamacare mms says reid was trying to turn him into a scapegoat in saying there would not be enough time. >> another issue is sexual assault in the military. who is leading the effort, and how is it expected to be handled during the debate. a very vocal issue. democrats on both sides that are leading the charge. kristin angela brandt is leading a proposal that would push the issue of prosecuting cases outside the chain of command. the measure has ordered a seven senators, including ted cruz and rand paul, as well as most women's democrat in the senate. it is opposed by senate mccaskill and leaders of the senate armed services committee. it is really one of those debates that is not falling along party lines. what are the other issues that co
board was announced during president obama's present visit in the spring of 2000. it was anllection is american proposal from the security council, essentially to give expression to the fact that we were already doing a great deal of foreign policy at aination, discussion strategic level in any event. and it has been a couple of years since i have been in washington, so i do not think the government at the time was saying that. and this is something that was fundamentally different -- different and new. i think it is useful but not absolutely essential to the overall relationship. just getting the team together on the american side, which hampered its first few months, but i would not myself think that this was critical to the issue of inking forward. i think that has to be done to some degree by the prime minister and the president. they have little time together, so it is very much something that needs to be included in the regular meetings at the foreign secretary level and then at the theor official level, like political director and others in the foreign office. you have this o

into our around the clock. i do think you heard about bush and now clinton fatigue you are about obama fatigue. there is an element of the saturation coverage that any president today attracts is ironically both potential he his great asset. it gives him great incident instant and total access to the public, but it is also a potential danger. the danger of overexposure. i think that is one factor. i think another factor is often you have burnout. you have some of the best people who come in at the beginning of the administration and there is oftent wave of energy, change and excitement. it is for difficult to sustain that for a years. the time you get to his second term, a lot of those people are gone, congress may very well be feeling its oats and may be more initially.han you may have problems within your own party. there are a number of factors that come together, but one of them clearly is, as i said earlier, hubris. when presidents, particular ly those who are strongly reelected maybe even more than as richarded, such nixon and watergate and bill clinton and lewinsky. there is hi

. everyone knows barack obama is a good speaker. i don't think he will wow us with his rhetoric anymore. that republicans are poised to win a of seats in the midterms. i don't know if it will be enough to take back the senate, but it might be. it has nothing to do with the rhetoric, at least not currently. with action and obamacare. i think it is entirely possible -- i was talking to an insurance insider on friday. nobody in the industry believes that the obamacare exchanges will be fixed by november 30, which was the fallback promise. aside from the other promise that you could keep your insurance. i think it is possible you will who, ifocrats -- november 30 comes and goes and the obamacare website is not fixed, they will begin having to assess their political survival. they are either going to jump up turnjump off the ship and on this health care law or they will probably go down. i think it is very likely that republicans will have a good 2014. if that happens, nothing succeeds like success. .inning covers a multitude if you are on a football team that is losing, you have bickering i

with the bush administration, began slowly with the obama administration, but it did become a central part of the administration's policy from year one or you're too, i would say, of the obama administration. you can argue about whether it was as vigorous as it might have been, but that was something that was a very clear asked by the u.k. of the u.s. to adopt a different approach to that. i think we got there in the end. the arms trade treaty you mentioned. we hads something where initially quite a negative reaction, but where, not just british lobbying about lobbying by others, as well, brought united states around the position which was adopted under the president. on climate change, i think you aed to look at this through complicated prison. under the bush administration. there was no way through in terms of getting our objectives met at the federal level. we had to concentrate on a very different strategy of trying to and agreement at the local and state level in the united states. we had some success in that, which is continuing in my time at the end of the bush administration and th
-- the health care sector. president obama said he did not know any of this stuff was going to happen. he said that he had no idea that these problems were coming. we had kathleen sebelius come to the committee and say that everything was ready to go. here is the issue -- if you outlaw the kind of insurance people actually have, they won't be able to keep those plans. they passed a law three years ago to outlaw the kinds of insurance that people have in their surprise that people don't have that? we talked about that in the 2010 elections. we talked about it in the 2012 elections. we knew all of this was happening at the time. we heard all of the soaring rhetoric and all of these problems and now we see what is happening. the way i see it, there are only two explanations. either they were being dishonest or they are just incompetent. frankly, i don't know which one is the worse. i think the left -- i think they are learning a pretty valuable lesson here. i think the valuable lesson that we are learning here, unfortunately, with all the human collateral damage with the obamacare spectacle is th

in order to try to advance the obama administration's regulatory agenda and they just broke the senate rules in order to exercise the power grab. so i would sum it up by saying it is a sad day in the history of the senate. after today, advise and consent probably means to them 100% consent. senator alexander would give you statistics on how common the rejection of nominees has been in the past because i think it will be eye-opening for you. >> thank you. in my view, this is the most important and most dangerous restructuring of senate rules since thomas jefferson wrote them at the beginning of our country. it is really not about the filibuster. it is another raw exercise of political power to permit the majority to do anything it wants whenever it wants to do it. it is obamacare ii in that sense. as senator levin said, after world war ii, a united states senate in which the majority can do anything it wants any time it wants is a senate without rules. it would be like the red sox falling behind in boston and saying to the cardinals, well, where the home team so we will add a few inning
barack obama, are under regular attack from conservatives about being weak militarily, not strengthening the military of the country. and kennedy wanted to avoid that. but i do not know if anything happened between he and the president during that trip, but kennedy knew just as much as the french new about what was once french indochina in which we wanted the french out. but then to prove how tough we were, we went in there, and as colin powell years later said in another context, we broke it. we broke vietnam. jack kennedy, president kennedy, twice signed off on two plots in vietnam. once in august of 1963 and then again on november 1 of 1963 when we told the general in saigon that we would not interfere if they tried to overthrow, which they did immediately and killed him immediately. and all of this is forgotten in history largely because kennedy was dead weeks later. as the years went on, the war became more unpopular. some journalists would say kennedy intended to get out. maybe he did. but it is a hell of a lot easier to get in then get out of situations like that, as we have learn
a website called your republican uncle -- yourre publicanuncle.com. responses.uggested myths, obama is a government takeover of the health care system. let's be honest, the affordable care act was born out of ideas originally proposed by republicans. it breaks it up into various categories, if you go into the twitter page, it gives facts you can discuss and agree with, such as fact six, you can agree over things giving dinner -- healthcare.gov is still broken. agree on -- you can iety ofre var responses to various political issues. maybe like to talk about politics, maybe you do not. give your thoughts. not only a few talk politics during the holiday, but also how that goes as far as the family and friends that you associate with. you can give us your thoughts on the phone this morning. democrats, (202) 585-3880. republicans, (202) 585-3881. and independents, (202) 585- 3882. if you want to give us your thoughts on thanksgiving and if it is a time to talk politics, you can do so on our twitter page, @cspanwj. page, go to our facebook there's a poll you can participate in. about 30 p
-- important that i think i supported president obama's attempt to meet his initiative in the spirit in which we would like to believe it's been given. there are no guarantees. there are no guarantees. but having said that the planet earth is less of a place with iran in a box that we really do need to try and find a way without giving away the farm the way we did in syria i might add to try and find a accommodation with iran. maybe it won't work. maybe it won't work. the ironny about this and the unusual characteristic is that the rouhani initiative to the u.s. and president obama's response has driven i ran and saudda arabia into the same corner. that is quite an achievement. israel and saudda -- saudi arabia are both very uncomfortable. what some israelis believe and probably more saudis believe is that they are doing this to buy time, they are not sincere, they don't mean it. he will not be able to deliver and they believe that iran will do what i believe assad is doing with the chemical weapons program. and in a sense, if you accept that accusation about syria, it certainly deserves to b
gas production on federal lands. but unfortunately the obama administration is actively and purposely keeping these resources off-limits. leasing and permitting delays, regulatory hurdles and ever-changing rules are few of the reasons energy production on federal lands is in decline. president obama has had the four lowest years of federal acres leased for energy production going back to 1988. under his administration, the average time -- the average time, madam chairman, to get a drilling permit on federal lands is 307 days. by contrast, it takes an average of only 10 days in north dakota to get a permit, and another example in colorado, it only takes 27 days. so it's no wonder that state lands are flourishing while federal lands are experiencing a decrease in energy protux. that's unacceptable. -- production. that's unacceptable, and this bill will unlack the shackles that have been placed on our federal lands. h.r. 1965, the federal lands, job and energy security act, is a package of bills that will help us expand, oil, natural gas and renewable energy production on public lands. i

in the minds of those of you old enough to remember where you were 50 years ago. president obama is calling this a day of her membranes for john f. kennedy. the flag at the u.s. capitol is half-staff. a tribute to our president who died in dallas a half-century ago. this is the scene at arlington national cemetery. the final resting place for president kennedy and members of his family. we are focusing on both of these stories. we want to begin on the issue of the nuclear option. the senate action -- we want to hear from you. the numbers are on your screen. join us on facebook, send us an e-mail come a or send us a tweet. let's take a look at some of the headlines from the l.a. times. here in washington is the front page. the senate curbs the filibuster. that is the story above the fold. there is this from the dallas morning news. his courage still inspires us. the kids of 1963. this is available online at their website. story might imagine, the in the u.s. senate -- it eliminates filibusters on most nominees. here are the details. dramatic step the of eliminating filibusters for most nomin
it better. stop carping about this. get over it. it's the law. it's the legacy of barack obama and always will be. let's get over this and stop the mischievous, misfortunate speeches out here every day about how bad it is. talk about the good things in this bill, and help us to make it better. now, mr. president, this afternoon this senate will vote to advance the employment nondiscrimination abilit act, legislation that would protect all americans from workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation. vote on final passage will occur shortly after the caucus, and that actually will start before the caucus votes -- i mean, before the caucus adjourns. so we'll start voting at 1:45 this afternoon. i do hope and expect a bipartisan vote, a good one, to extend safeguards against workplace harassment and discrimination to every american. the time has come for congress to pass a federal law that ensures all citizens, regardless of where they live, can go to work not afraid of who they are. more than 80% of the american people feel that is already the law. they feel that is already the law.

at the latest developments in obama care strictly from a policy point of view, whether it's the president's executive order or the upton bill or what mary landrieu is working on -- >> mm-hmm. >> wouldn't allowing people who have these individual plans to keep their plans, wouldn't that mess up the overall concept in obama care because hopefully the people in the individual plans were more healthy and they remove them from the overall population. it messes them up. just the idea of allowing a certain segment to keep its plan. wouldn't that have a negative effect overall on the affordable care act? >> well, while that may be true, i'm sure any change will have an effect. i think the bigger, broader effect is on the individual lives of people who are now getting plans they can no longer afford. by that, i mean you look at premium increases that are going up hundreds of dollars a month -- sometimes $1,000 a month. it's a wide range. some people will get subsidies and support and pay less. but there's this group in the middle who make just enough -- they get no subsidy, and the price of their
. everyone knew that they would be poor, and yesterday, president obama did not have anything direct to say about them, but the administration was upbeat. they said the people are online and shopping in the marketplace. they predicted that enrollment would ramp up over time, which is what we have seen in other programs like medicare part d come and the massachusetts help reform that was obamacare's predecessor. most people tend to sign up for coverage closer deadlines, so that is what the administration hopes will vindicate them after the first month, which did not go well. host: but if the deadline is not until march, why were expectations so high to begin with? people do not have to sign up until later. guest: that is right here at march is a key deadline because it is obviously the end of a six-month enrollment period. the other date is december 15, which is when people choose plans if they want them to kick in in january. there are a lot of people losing their coverage right now and they're going to want to remain insured, and for them, the middle of december is the crucial deadline. th

's explore enacting the mandatory savings contained in president obama's own budget. president obama has outlined budget savings in the entitlement programs that were courageous, difficult, but they do not cut benefits. these proposals do not cut social security. they do not cut medicaid. no one is suggesting, as has been alluded to, suggested by some members of this conference committee that there is a proposal to slash benefits or cut benefits. all we're talking about and all the president is talking about in the mandatory proposed savings in his own budget is slowing the growth rate of these very important programs to save our nation from a fiscal and debt crisis and to save the very valuable programs. i think those are the sweet spot. tax reform to give us economic growth and savings in the growth rate of our mandatory programs. i hope we can rise to the occasion and be problem solvers for the american people. >> thank you. senator kaine. >> thank you. good to be with colleagues on this. one thing i want to do is confound the cynics who have low expectations of us. there have been ye
that we would go from fiscal issues to obama issues that would obscure the strong points of the republican message which is fiscal issues. that is strong at the grassroots. the reason i signed on and the reason i stayed on is because when you vote against obamacare, and when you vote to repeal it, and you say you're going to do what you can because you think it is bad for the country, i don't think i should abandon that. >> you heard from kathleen sebelius this past week. what is your confidence level that healthcare.gov will be working after november 30? >> it will not be. the website in and of itself is a symptom of bigger problems. it kind of obscures these bigger problems. there is a lot of problems beyond that that even if they do get the website working, they will find out that they are not going to get the number of young people in they want. they will find people turned off from the promise that if you like it you can keep it, your health insurance or your doctor. they will see their premiums go up and all those things will be major problems for obama care. that was best reflected
